News and Events

Weekly Spotlight....

The Humane Society is shining the spotlight on a four-legged friend who is in need of a home. We introduce Sir Arthur Kidd, a tuxedo cat who survived some horrific injuries as the result of a vehicle engine making deep slices gashes across his chest, belly and leg.
Sir Arthur, so named for his strength and his rescuer, managed to crawl to a Good Samaritan's home. We are not sure how long he'd been injured before he arrived; but he was severely dehydrated with serious wounds.
At the vet's office his injuries couldn't be addressed until he was out of the critical phase.
After days of IV fluids and antibiotics to combat rampant infection, he was able to eat and withstand the anesthesia to have the gashes cleaned and sutured.
Throughout all the blood work, IV placement, medications surgery etc., Sur Arthur remained just a sweet natured guy. The vet feared for his front leg as x- rays indicated severe elbow damage.
Sire Arthur went home to a medical foster to continue healing. Fortunately as the swelling receded, Sir Arthur put weight on the leg thereby saving it.
After a long recuperation this gentle cat is ready for adoption.
He is a true cuddle buddy will be a great companion for someone who wants a companion kitty close at hand. He has great manners and is a gentle boy.
If this handsome Tuxedo appeals to you; please contact the Humane Society about an adoption application. His adoption fee is $75.00,
PHOTO CONTEST CALENDAR....

Stray to Strut....

The work of rescuers is exhausting and often heartbreaking but then we get a story like this to share. 


This sweet dog was a stray at the Animal Shelter here in Pulaski County and now LOOK. A Runway model in Canada..........life is sweet.


Thanks to the many who work so many hours to arrange rescue; transport and adoption of the thousands of animals who need help every day.

Justice for Mira....

McCreary County Grand Jury Drops Case against Man for Dog Torture
Meeting for their regular August session, the McCreary County Grand Jury returned a “no true bill” in the case of Larry Meadows who had been charged with the torture of a dog or cat.  Meadows was arrested after a dog suffered severe injuries and eventually died from those injuries. A no true bill from the Grand Jury means there was not sufficient evidence presented to warrant charges and for the case to proceed.
PLEASE find out who your elected officials are in Frankfort and write or call them  insisting on better animal legislation.

Justice for Snow....
Snow


        Legislative update: 

Great News for animals. On January 18th 2018, the accused killer of little SNOW was sentenced to jail. He will serve a year incarcerated and will also do community service. PCHS is very grateful to the officials who made sure this case stayed viable and went the distance to assure JUSTICE for little SNOW!


Making a difference


The Pulaski County Humane Society  works alongside the Pulaski County Animal Shelter to save many dogs and cats from being euthanized.

Each week, PCHS members go to the shelter and transport dogs and cats to several different rescues.

Some dogs are adopted as far away as New York state and Ontario, Canada.

This is just one of the ways that the Pulaski County Humane Society saves the lives of animals.
